Biking back home.
When I was a kid, first of all I was terrible at school. But we lived in the banana fields of Central America. Surrounded by pristine rainforest. My only friend and peer, my neighbor Guillermo Montes de Oca, was from our early age a wild man. He was happiest when we found snakes. He would lasso them and pick them up. We handled them like born again snake charmers and eventually let them loose once we got bored of them. These where not your run of the mill garden snakes. We lived in the tropics and the reptiles where very poisonous. FerDelances, Corals, vipers and even boas. But for us it was just another day in our back yard. His father also a wild man had alligators in his back yard and we loved nothing more than to go see them after school.
Environmental Photos of the year HDR This is definitely a photo manipulated in HDR. Is it valid to use this post production gimmick to turn in impossible images and have them win over more honest photography? I do not think it is.
